Product Snapshot: MALEBRANCHE is proud to introduce its newest treat, Maru CHA CHA – a matcha biscuit that combines native Kyoto heritage with French confectionary techniques. Matcha is a powdered green tea made from the young tea leaves that are ground in a stone mill and can be enjoyed in thick (koicha) or thin (usucha) variations. Koicha, the base of Maru CHA CHA biscuits, is made with higher quality matcha, resulting in a richer flavor and allowing you to taste the inherent sweetness of the green tea. Maru CHA CHA biscuits are gluten free, as they are made with rice flour instead of wheat. These thin biscuits have a “melt in your mouth” appeal and are great as a stand-alone healthy snack, or to be paired with coffee and tea. Maru CHA CHA are available for purchase at Upper East Side and SoHo Dean & DeLuca stores in New York City for a suggested retail price of $8 per 7-piece box and $14 per 20-piece box.
